Lexus has trademarked yet another interesting name, according to, staking claim to "RC 350" in Australia. What could Lexus have in mind for the nameplate? The car may be the production interpretation of the LF-CC concept we saw at the Paris Motor Show. Given the numerals in the name, there's a good chance the two-door coupe will feature the company's 3.5-litre V6 engine currently found under the hoods of models like the IS 350 and GS 350. Beyond that, details are as scarce as hen's teeth.

As you may recall, Lexus also recently laid claim to "NX 200t" and "NX 300h." Those names are likely to be applied to a new family of crossovers powered by a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine.

We've reached out to Lexus for comment on the RC 350 trademark, but have yet to hear back. We'll update this post with more information as it becomes available.
